Sunday  –  Intermediate and Advance levels
1:00pm to 4:30pm with a half hour break at 2:30pm – Interpretation to emphasize how to do rather than what to do
– Musicality, rhythm, melody
– Dancing Tango “Milonga” (Rhythmic Orchestras like D’Arienzo)
– Dancing Tango “Romanza” (Melodic Orchestras like Pugliese)

It is not the same to dance D’Arienzo as it is to dance Pugliese
Discover different ways to dance in order with the music.
As a follower:  or female dancer as Monica says, at the milongas, she chooses her partners after recognizing the orchestra that is playing.  Once on the dance floor, she adapts her dance selection how to do each movement.
As a leader:  After 20 years of dancing with many milongueros, Monica became very good at breaking down their dance.  You know several steps but always dance the same way?  It’s time to add “flavor” to your dance.
